Many people will tell you that getting married in winter isn’t a good idea and that you should perhaps change the date of the big day. They’ll back these opinions up with the worry that the weather so unreliable in winter and that you may be setting yourself up for failure if you’re set on winter.
The truth is that winter is the perfect time to plan a small intimate wedding for you and your husband to be to share with close friends and family.
With the right winter decor creating the ambiance of warmth, a winter wedding menu and the backdrop of a wine farm, your wedding can be as beautiful as you choose to make it.
We know there’s a lot of planning that goes into making the day special, but, one of the most important parts of this planning is what you’ll be wearing down the aisle as you see your dreams come true!
Wearing the perfect designer wedding dress
At the top of any brides list is, of course, finding the perfect wedding dress, something that will stun your guests and take your groom’s breath away, of course! With winter being a unique time to host your wedding, here are a few tips that might help you on the journey to finding the perfect designer wedding dress.
Throw on a bit of Faux Fur
If you’re looking for a way to add some warmth to your dress so that you don’t shiver your way through the ceremony, you may want to think about adding a faux fur stole or wrap, which, aside from keeping you warm just looks great.
As the weather may be unpredictable (though this is true of any season really!), you’ll want to make sure your dress is warm enough for you to feel comfortably toasty so that you can relish your special day.
Opt for long sleeves
This simple choice for your dress can make your wedding dress look beautifully stylish and yet bring the warmth you’re going to need on a frosty day!
With a cape or stole on hand to set aside when it gets to the reception and the first dance, you’ll still be warm enough not to swirl around with goose bumps all the way down your arms!
